Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings

I was a Disney baby, and I have never grown out of Disney movies. I still watch our old videos of Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid (to name a few) and still swoon over Ariel and Prince Eric!

Imagine my surprise when I found out about Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings, where you can "walk down the aisle of your very own fairy tale come true" and "enjoy the enchantment of ceremonies and receptions set against magical backdrops, unparalleled entertainment and savory menus as your personal 'fairy godplanner' grants your every wish and ensures your wedding day is everything you have always dreamt it would be."

That, according to the Disneyland Weddings website, is "the magic of Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings." I guess you can make your happily ever after look pretty much like how it looked in your favorite Disney movie! You can even ride in Cinderella's coach! (Only you don't get to see it turn into one from a pumpkin.) How cool is that?


Disney also has an exclusive bridal fashion line designed by Kirstie Kelly, where you can find designs inspired by the Disney Princesses! Below are some examples of Kelly's designs:



Snow White



Sleeping Beauty


Ariel

Belle

Cinderella



The designs don't really resemble the gowns in the movies, but they were created to capture the "essence" of each of the Disney Princesses that served as muses of inspiration for these beautiful pieces.

Actually, these designs can simply serve as inspiration for your wedding gown. Think about your favorite fairy tale and your heroine's wedding gown, and if it's doable, why not make a sketch and just get it done for you?

I see the inspiration of the dresses. The snow white one has the sleeve like straps, the sleeping beauty has the corsette, the little mermaid has the fish tail skirt, the belle the poofy skirt and the cinderella the bell skirt. I am getting a sense of Project Runway 1 deja vu.

Very cool, Alternati. ^_^ I was expecting dresses that really looked like the ones the princesses wore in the movies, though, but I guess if they made them that way, it would be very costume-y. Haha. My fave is the Belle-inspired dress because it's pretty close to Belle's yellow gown. ;)
